The big day comes, and Kyle doesn't fly to Sacramento with the rest of them because she has to finish getting ready for Portia's party. She also may have predicted that the Maloofs would take it upon themselves to bring up The Lisa Thing, and was just dodging that bullet.
How upset did Paul seem about not being invited to the Villa Blanca party? The fight has nothing to do with him really, and it was awkward that he cared so much. Mauricio played the middle, saying, in groups of opinionated people, there are bound to be a few clashes. And that's true. I'm just sick of everyone being afraid to call Adrienne on her bull.
Back in Beverly Hillz, Kyle is putting the finishing touches on Portia's party when in walk the Vanderpumps -- about two hours early. Lisa claimed that she had some important wine thingy with people from Napa, and had to leave early.
Of course, Kyle was suspicious, and accused her of doing all of these to avoid conflict with Adrienne. Lisa and Kyle make small talk about Lisa making out with the llama (See: beginning of recap) then Lisa walks a llama through Kyle's house to the backyard. Rude!
Anyway, Kyle tries to play peacemaker, but Lisa shuts all of that down. It's between her and Maloof. Let it alone. Kyle thinks it's all really childish, especially because she and Camille Grammer were able to make up after their falling out.
The rest of the party is filled with grown women behaving badly. Camille shows up, and she and a few unnamed women butt into Kim's business about her ex. Brandi, who was feeling anxious about seeing Taylor again, ended up leaving early because Taylor gave her the cold shoulder.
Then, Taylor chose to gossip loudly about Brandi's "You know everyone, you've slept with every one" comment. She even tried to pull Kyle into it, but Kyle refuses. This is a kid's birthday party, people. And how childish did that make Taylor look?
Then Adrienne and Paul show up all woe is me, claiming the other Housewives are protecting Lisa, or whatever.
We really need a showdown because all of this underhanded shadiness is getting old, quick.
